    Ill give it a go and see how it works.
    It is however, as obvious as a turd in a punch bowl. But then again, only gun people would know what was inside my Sack. Other folks would just assume tourist.

    I just don't care anymore. What are they going to do? Shoot me?

    The best sack thingies I have seen are made by a friend of mine in Vancouver Washington, velcro flap and has an internal holster....

    I actually made a sack thingy, it was a stout nylon belt with a holster attached to it, the bag was slotted and sewn to the belt, it was for a J-frame S&W revolver, an M-36 IIRC.....
    The bag was large enough to conceal the revolver and had a separate compartment for a speed loader / badge / credentials....

    Got a link?

    What I like about the Octa is that I can unzip the pouch with the handgun and the flap stays down. Continuing to conceal the weapon but expediting draw should I feel the need to be somewhat proactive. Like, walking into a gas station late at night, etc.

    One less step in the process. Can't do that with the styles that flap down, ie: Eagle, Blackhawk, Bulldog, 511, and darn near every other company out there.

    If staged with the compartment already unzipped, all I have to do is lift and draw.

    Velcro flap is best, he uses the best materials does lots of work for Police officers...

    Velcro is the Devil! There is absolutely NO was under God's green earth to open that stuff quietly without moving a centimeter a minute. Plus, it wears out quickly with hard use.

    And if you have pets, the Velcro collects fur and ceases to function. . .plus you end up walking around with an excessively hairy Sack.

    You're actually arguing that your friends magical velcro makes no noise when opening and doesn't wear out. You have issues.

    Who makes this silent and durable Velcro? Because I have been unable to find any in all my wanderings.

    The problem with a new Sack is that it would not be broken in. It takes a lot of time to get a Sack broken in. It would take constant adjustment

    That's what I tried to tell my girlfriend but she wasn't buying the excuse...

    It varies in color, depending on if I wash it regularly. It has to be adjusted from time to time and frequently gets in the way. However, I'm kind of attached to my sack, and It would cause me great pain to part with it.

    That does happen from time to time. Does anybody else's man sack get covered in sweat on hot days too? And why does my man sack seem to be situated lower than when I first started using it??? Any suggestions?

    Grammar Nazi Sam will probably point out that you misspelled Waas.

    Although the Freudian slip of wASS, instead of Waas is sometimes appropriate. :tooth:

    Well, in TN a carry permit allows open or concealed carry so I don't worry about it much. I know that I've been 'made' a few times but got no comment about it. Either people in TN who noticed have the good manners not to comment, or I look just psycho enough that they are afraid to comment. I personally believe it is the latter reason. :tooth:

    Actually, I think the cat's ran off with his Man Sack. He's ticked off because he can't find it, and is concerned about the color of his comments right now. If this continues, we'll have the aviation unit fly the Missing Man Sack formation. . .which I think consists of just one airplane. . .
